The first part of the picture deals
with the temptation in the Garden of

of a scrpr-nt, tempting Adam and Eve,
who are then driven from the Garden
of Eden across a desert waste to rear
a race of men doomed to suffer "Eter

The Parmele Crowded to Its Utmost
Capacity to Listen to the Exer
cises of Graduates of the
The class of 1917 of the Platts
mouth high school last evening at
the Parmele theatre completed the
ast step in their four vyears in the
high school, w-hen they stepped forth
upon the stage as graduates and laid
behind them the happy, care free
school days, to prepare for their en
counter with the world in which they
will henceforth have a vital part to
perform. It was a pleasing sight with
the thirty-seven young people seated
on the stage in cap and gown and
each adorned with the red roses,
which had been chosen as the flower
of the class, and each of the class
representing the efforts of the four
years' course of study.
The Plattsmouth high school can
well feel proud of the class of 1917,
representing as it does the best of
the young manhood and womanhood
of the city, who have striven so ear
nestly in their work that success
might crown their efforts in complet
ing their education.
Eight young men and twenty-nine
young ladies comprised the class, as
follows: Anna Josephine Weber, E.
Glenn Elliott, Edna M. Tulene, Will

Miss Delia Frans, one of the gifie
members of the class, opened U.e p o
gram with a most pleasing piano sl3
that was received with much pleasure
by the members of the class and the
ror the honor of delivering l ie
salutatory the class had selected Wil
Schmidtmann, who took as his si b
ject "The Spirit of the Age," touch
ing upon the different phases of
eWnts that had served as the ruli.ig
spirit of each of the periods of tine
since the beginning of the world in
which we live, and reaching the nu d
ern period in the world's history, de
picting education as the great factor
that had been found in the present
age of the world, and which had con
tributed to the advancement of man
kind to the present day, and for whi.-h
he young people of today were striv
ing to attain. Mi Schmidtmann also
in behalf 'of the class extended tie
welcome to the parents, friends and
citizens of Plattsmouth to the grad
uating exercises. The address was
one that showed much study add
thoughtful preparation and expressed
the feeling of the class as to the valuer
of the education that they had re
ceived in the schools of this city to
fit them for the battle of life.
Miss Beatrice Seybert, the valedic
torian of the class, bid farewell on
behalf of the class to the golden days
of school time, with its close friend
ships, its fond memories and grateful
remembrance of the work of the fac
ulty of the school, in fitting the stu
dents for their part in the drama up
on the stage of life. Miss Seybert
had as her subject "The Headquar
ters of Civilization," taking up the
Greek and Roman civilizations of the
dawn of the world and the gradual
sweeping away of the tyo great na
tions whose place had been taken by
other nations in the press of time.
In America the highest type so far of
civilization could be found today
where the best of all the nations of
the earth had gathered and formed
a great nation that was to still far
ther carry out their mission in the
world. To make the citizenship per
fect it was necessary to drive out all
vice or Influence that might tend to
detract from the development of the
race and to permit America to take
its proper place as the leader of the
world's civilization. The speaker ex
pressed the hope that in the coming
years the last obstacles to the de
velopment and purification of the
race might be swept aside and Amer
ica come forth as the cleanest and
greatest nation of the earth and
would serve as a guiding star for all
i.Z.s. John V, roller avzied. the
class and audience with one of her
usual charming solos, which was a de-
ight to everyone present and was
received with marked approval by
everyone present. Miss Verna Cole
served as accompanist for Mrs. Fal
ter. The class address was delivered by
Rev. G. E. Newell of the Third Pres
byterian church of Kansas City, Mo.,
and was one filled with great interest.
The theme of the address was "Pay
ing the Full Price," and was one filled
with many thoughts of great value
to the graduating class and the audi
ence. The personality of the human
race, physically, mentally and spirit
ually, was taken up by the speaker
and a number of examples of the
leaders of the world were taken up
as showing the success that can be
attained in the affairs of the world
and the price that must be paid to
accomplish the goal, and this was up
to the man or woman .who would be
called upon to pay the price to attain
their ambition. In the fields of
trained athletics there was a price to
pay in clean living and avoidance of
the things that would tend to under
mine the welfare of the body and han-
diewp the development of the physical
side ot man. ine many days ana
years ol study that were necessary
for mental attainment were all a part
of the price demanded in pavment
for the success of the positions that
the great figures in the world had at
tained. To the spiritual side it was
also necessary to pay by clean up
right lives that the men and women
might attain their desired aims and
be brought in closer touch with the
Divine Ruler, that their hearts might
be attuned so that they could have a
spiritual force in the world.
At the conclusion of the ; ddrcss of
Rev. Newell, Superintendent W. G.
Brooks announced the awarding of
the scholarship to the honor gradu
ate, who had the highest average for
the four years' work in la
and this was iriven to Mi

are vital to your comfort:
They are full fashioned garments; knit to fit the

with every movement of the body.
-rThe cuffs and anklets are knit on; not sewed on.
This does away with the irritating seams.
Every garment is put through a shrinking process,
